3 Key Fundraising Tips
What are the fundamentals of fundraising? They may be simpler than you think.
The Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT) offers resources, training, and a slew of free articles. Here are 3 key fundraising tips from the good folks at GIFT:
“1. People give when they are asked, and rarely give when they are not. Even when people are asked, they don’t always give. So, you need to ask for more gifts than the number you need to bring in, and you need to be comfortable with people saying ‘No.’
2. Donors are not ATMs. You need to thank them and keep them posted on what your organization is doing with their money if you want them to give more than once.
3. You can’t raise all the money your group needs by yourself. Spend some time building a team of people to help you.”
